How it works

Our Reaching You Help at Home service is delivered by a combination of staff and volunteers. We do charge an hourly rate for jobs we do in this category, in order to cover our costs and to help support our free services.

Help to maintain independence

Charge (respite sitting): £12.50/hour + 45p per mile travelled to, from and during the job

Charge (shopping or escorting): £11.00/hour + 45p per mile travelled to, from and during the job

We recognize that for many it can be a struggle to maintain independence in later life, and some people need a little extra help. If you live in or around Leominster, Hereford, Bromyard or Ledbury, we may be able to help out with:

  • regular shopping
  • occasional help with transport to appointments and events
  • occasional respite sitting

Please note that unfortunately we cannot provide personal care or moving and handling.

Handyperson help

Charge: £12.50/hour + 45p per mile travelled to, from and during the job

We currently have some capacity to provide help with:

  • light gardening
  • light DIY (e.g. fitting hand rails and key safes)
  • IT coaching

Not all services are available in all areas of Herefordshire; this is subject to change, so please get in contact to discuss what's available at any given time in your area.
